Barbecue Challenge Judging Information
Now Accepting 2019 Judging Applications!
Thank you for your interest in participating in the Best Dam Barbecue Challenge as a competition judge!
Because we believe strongly that a quality competition requires the highest standards in judging, we strive to use 100% KCBS certified judges at our event.
Applications from certified barbecue judges will be confirmed on a first-come, first served basis, so we encourage early application. Non-certified applicants may apply to be placed on a standby list.
Application Status & Cancellations
By submitting an application, you are not guaranteed a judging spot. We reply to applicants within 10 days of receiving an application to acknowledge receipt and inform them of status.
If you are confirmed as a judge, we will provide you with the details about logistics. Competition judging will take place from 10:00am – 2:30pm and judges must be present the entire time (absolutely no exceptions). If you arrive late, your judging seat will be forfeited.
If you submit a judging application and are then not able to attend our event, please inform us via email as soon as possible by clicking here.
